look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

a. A proper, hard pour provides a stout grainy yet rocky/milky mocha head. Little white star bubbles are noticed glistening off of the noon day light. Lacing is abundant.

s.Huge black coffee and espresso aromas, chocolate and malt, but Im pretty sure they are separate aromas, and not simply chocolate malt, though I am sure that was used too. Coffee and Barley aromatize the room.

T. A small sip yields an overwhelming complexity of delight. Chocolate is the first nip to the palate, quickly chased by some cappachino like coffee. Oatmeal is certainly here lending a subtle flavor. The earthy hop mingles with some bitter unsweetened chocolate to provide a mineral/bitter edge. Finishes chalky with a whiff of alcohal.

M. Mouthfeel is semi-vicious, semi-smooth. Oatmeal provided the smooth factor to the palate, the hop would add to the viscousity. The only room for improvement would be a nitro tap/cask to add to the smoothness of the mouthfeel.

D. This strong, meaty beer is a solid A+ stout. Any time of day one of these will be all you need. I plan to keep these in stock at all times, and wish it were more widely available.
